"To have lived in Montreal and to have played in the Forum, to have

Dryden declined to speculate on his future. He said he had hoped to know
by now but didn't.
"All I can say is that I'm talking with a few people and beyond that I
really don't know." He said he had considered the "extremely interesting
idea" of playing in the Soviet Union for a year but it was turned down by the
Soviet Ice Hockey Federation.
"In any case, it was not an either-or proposition and was but one option I
had been considering. The hockey part of it was really almost incidental."
A graduate of Cornell University in Ithaca, N.Y., Dryden played hockey
there and with Canada's national team before joining the Montreal
organization in 1970-71. He joined the Canadiens for the last six games of that
season and won the ConnSmythe Trophy as the outstanding player in the
Montreal won the Stanley Cup with Dryden in the nets for all 20 playoff
The next season he won the Calder Trophy as the top rookie in the NHL
and won his first Vezina one year later. He was on the second all-star team in
his first full season - 1971-72 - and on the first team five times. The
Canadiens won six Stanley Cups during his tenure.
He sat out the 1973-74 season because of a contractural dispute with the
team and spent the year clerking for a law firm in Toronto.
Dryden's retirement leaves Michel Larocque as the team's No. 1
goaltender, a status Larocque has been seeking for a number of years. The
No. 2 spot remains wide open.
Dryden's retirement comes at a time when the team, fresh from its four-
th consecutive Stanley-Cup, has lost key personnel both on and off the ice.
Veteran centre Jacques Lemaire has left the team for a post in Swit-
zerland. Coach Scotty Bowman has gone to Buffalo Sabres as coach-general
manager and Al MacNeil, director of player personnel, has taken over as
coach of the Atlanta Flames.

PONTIAC, Mich. - Terry Thomas, who played basketball at the
University of Detroit, has been signed as a free agent with the Detroit Lions
of the National Football League, the team announced today.
Thomas, 25, spent one season with the Detroit Pistons of the National
Basketball Association after graduation in 1975. The University of Detroit
didn't have a football team. Thomas will be tried as a tight end with the
Lions, team spokesman Don Kremer said.
He was cut by the Pistons during the 1975-76 season after scoring a total
of 77 points in 28 games.
He had been approached by the Dallas Cowboys of the NFL following his
college career but decided at that time to play pro basketball.
Thomas will join the Lions this week as the team opens its training camp
at Oakland University.
